Keep Your Laptop Healthy

Never leave laptops plugged in and unsupervised for long periods of time, like overnight.  It is best to always use laptops on surfaces that allow for proper ventilation like a desk or table. Prolonged charging and limited ventilation can damage the battery, the operating systems and cause the machine to shut down completely.

Additional Tips:

  • Shut down the laptop every day after use
  • Use and store the laptop in an area that is free from dust, extreme heat, cold, or humidity
  • Restart the laptop several times per week.

Behind the Wheel information.  Classes resume September 21st.

Message from the Principal

GovDelivery 1 week ago

Greetings Saxon families,

I hope this communication finds each of you well. Our school year has gotten off to a tremendous start. During this week, I’ve had the pleasure of visiting a number of classrooms and have been delighted with the high level of student engagement. Our students and teachers are to be commended for their efforts.

As the year is now underway, below is information you may find useful.

Mondays

Teacher Office Hours - 8:30 a.m.- 11:30 a.m.

Students will access teachers through course links provided in Schoology. Students may access teachers for assistance. If a student is struggling academically, the teacher may require him/her to meet during office hours.

Students should complete asynchronous assignments. Weekly assignments are located within teachers’ course Schoology sites in folders labeled either Weekly Assignments or Unit Assignments.

Asynchronous Assignments

As shared during town halls and Friday 45 meetings held in August, students in standard level and honors courses will be assigned a maximum of 60 minutes of asynchronous work per week. For advanced level courses, the maximum amount of time needed for a typical student to complete asynchronous assignments should be no more than 75 minutes. It is expected that the bulk of assignments be assigned so they may be completed on Mondays.

Back to School Night

Our Back to School Night event will be held virtually. Schoolwide recordings will be sent on Monday, September 21 at 6 p.m. The communication will also provide directions for accessing student courses.

9/11

On this somber day, we took time in Saxon Country to remember the victims of the attacks. Below is the information shared with students at the start of the school day. The video may be accessed here.

 

Thank you all for your ongoing support and partnership.

Wishing you wellness,

Kimberly Greer

Langley offers onsite SAT to all seniors

On Wednesday, September 23, 2020, Langley High School twelfth graders will have the opportunity to take the SAT School Day test. FCPS will cover the cost for any twelfth grade student to take the SAT. The optional essay component and subject tests will not be offered on this date.

To assist in planning for this test administration and FCPS bus transportation needs, families are asked to complete the intention to test form by COB Monday, August 31. Only those students wishing to test should complete the form. The intention form and a translated version of the form content may be found on the SAT School Day Intent webpage.

General information about the SAT test format is available on the College Board webpage. September 23 has been designated for asynchronous learning, so students who choose to take the SAT will not miss synchronous learning time with their teachers.

We will share more details about test day schedules, bus transportation, and specific safety protocols in the coming weeks. Final confirmation of SAT School Day testing will be based on health department guidance in September.

If you have questions about the SAT School Day administration, please contact Janice Dabroski at jldabroski@fcps.edu

The Courtyard Has Trees! 

When students (eventually!) return to Langley, a greener courtyard awaits! Wheat's just completed Phase 1 of the main courtyard landscaping project, which includes an abundance of trees, shrubs, and plants. Many thanks to the hundreds of Langley families who donated a leaf to the Langley Legacy Tree to support the project.  

If you haven't yet donated, now's your chance! We still have an empty Science Courtyard that needs landscaping. Donate a leaf to the Langley Legacy Tree, the beautiful wall sculpture that is "growing" in Langley’s lobby (across from the main office). The Legacy Tree is a permanent and prominent record of generous courtyard contributors. Choose your engraved message — leaves make wonderful tributes to students, teachers, family and friends! Giving levels are copper leaf ($50), silver leaf ($100), gold leaf ($200) and acorn or bird ($500). Click on ptsalangley.org and look for the Legacy Tree article to donate your tree leaves/acorns/birds. Questions Email chrissielavin1@gmail.com

Greetings Saxons,

Welcome to the 2020-21 school year! I hope the summer has provided each of you an opportunity for rest and reconnection with family and friends. As we continue to deal with the uncertainty created by the pandemic, it has become even more necessary that we focus on caring for one another and strengthening relationships.

While the halls of our beloved school remain empty and void of the usual sense of excitement and anticipation which normally accompany the start of a new school year, our staff members are busy preparing to welcome your sons and daughters. Since August 14, teachers have been engaged in collaborative meetings; professional development trainings and review of course content in order to ensure we are ready to meet the challenge of virtual learning on September 8.

In anticipation of the first day of school, there are a number of items of which you need to be aware. Student schedules will be available in StudentVue and ParentVue the morning of September 2.  

As previously shared, Langley is piloting the Schoology learning management platform this school year. Students and parents will have access to the site beginning September 2. An overview of Schoology will be provided during a Langley town hall on September 2, 3:30-4:30 pm. The meeting link will be provided the morning of the event.

On September 3, Langley will host a virtual orientation for all students from 9am-10:36 am. This will provide an opportunity for students to practice accessing their classes prior to September 8. It will also give teachers a chance to welcome students before the first day of school. Detailed log information will be given closer to the event date.

Please visit the Return to School page on the Langley HS website for school opening information and links to school forms.  

Again, I welcome you to a new school year. Please know, we are committed to providing each student a rich learning environment where every member of our school community is welcome and valued.

Wishing you wellness,

Parents, We Need Your Consent for Select Digital Resources

At Langley High School, our teachers will use a variety of digital resources to support student learning and promote communication and collaboration with students and families. Some of the digital resources your child may use this year will require your consent before they can be used. You can find our school’s list of the resources that require parental consent here: https://langleyhs.fcps.edu/adopteddigitalresources

Included on this page is also a link to a form where the enrolling parent or guardian will need to indicate whether or not their student is allowed to use the list of digital resources this year. This page also provides more information about how FCPS carefully reviews digital resources for approval and why we must request your consent before using certain tools. We encourage you to complete the parental consent for digital resources form as soon as possible, as your child will not be able to use the digital resources until we have received your permission. Please reach out to your students teacher if you have questions or concerns about the digital resources they have chosen to use this year.

2.    Turn the device on and let it boot up.

3.    Ensure that the laptop is connected to the internet.

4.    Let the device sit for 30 minutes. No additional action is required.

The Courtyard Has Trees! 

When students (eventually!) return to Langley, a greener courtyard awaits! Wheat's just completed Phase 1 of the main courtyard landscaping project, which includes an abundance of trees, shrubs, and plants. Many thanks to the hundreds of Langley families who donated a leaf to the Langley Legacy Tree to support the project.  

If you haven't yet donated, now's your chance! We still have an empty Science Courtyard that needs landscaping. Donate a leaf to the Langley Legacy Tree, the beautiful wall sculpture that is "growing" in Langley’s lobby (across from the main office). The Legacy Tree is a permanent and prominent record of generous courtyard contributors. Choose your engraved message — leaves make wonderful tributes to students, teachers, family and friends! Giving levels are copper leaf ($50), silver leaf ($100), gold leaf ($200) and acorn or bird ($500). Click on ptsalangley.org and look for the Legacy Tree article to donate your tree leaves/acorns/birds. Questions Email chrissielavin1@gmail.com

Counselor Alpha Redistribution

Every several years it is necessary for us to re-distribute the caseloads of our school counselors.  Those students impacted received an email last week and were followed up with their ‘new’ counselor.  Due to the important role that school counselors play in the part of students, we recognize that this shift is no small one.  However, in order to maintain a manageable caseload for counselors and support their ability to serve each child, this shift is necessary.  That being said, while the alpha shift will occur for all students, we fully recognize that seniors in particular may wish to remain connected to their previous counselor as they navigate the post-secondary planning process this fall, which we are happy to oblige.  Please note the new alpha breakdown for students below.

Registering or Withdrawing from School

Registration: Parents will need to complete the registration paperwork that is available online and reach out to the registrar, Mary Gratz via email.   Families will be contacted via email or phone for the next steps in the registration process.

Return to School Information

GovDelivery 2 months ago

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Please know the deadline to submit your intention of in-person or virtual classes for next school year is today (July 15, 2020).  This information is critical for Langley administrators to appropriately plan staffing for both virtual and in-person classes. FCPS has indicated that if no response is received the default answer is that the student will attend in-person.  Enrollment Options and additional information regarding the options can be found here. To select the option that works best for your child or children, please follow the steps below:

    • STEP 1: Access the online form 
    • STEP 2: Log in with your child’s Student ID and either the enrolling parent’s email address or phone number on file in the FCPS Student Information System (SIS).
    • STEP 3: Make your selection and finish by clicking the “Submit Form” button at the bottom of the form.
    • STEP 4: Check your email for a message acknowledging receipt of your enrollment decision with additional information about the enrollment process and a link to change your selection, if desired.
    • STEP 5:  Repeat this process for each of your children attending school in FCPS for school year 2020-21.

 

We recognize this is a very important decision and families may still be gathering as much information as possible before submitting the form.  Dr. Brabrand’s town hall video from July 6 can be found here, in which he answered many questions from parents.  In addition the FCPS FAQ’s can be found here

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Today, the School Board met to discuss the opening of schools.  Here are a few of the outcomes you need to know:

  • The high school start time remains at 8:10am and school will end at 2:55pm for both online and in-person classes
  • All high school students (online and in-person) will be following an A/B block schedule rather than 8 periods per day. 
    • This allows for fewer pass times in the hallway
    • Allows for more weekly instructional time
    • Allows for better access to Academy classes
    • Provides a longer instructional time frame for courses with labs or needed prep time 
  • For in-person classes:
    • Last names beginning with A-K will attend Tuesday and Thursday
    • Last names beginning with L-Z attend Wednesday and Friday
  • The deadline for selecting online or in-person instruction is needed by July 15.  Parents can select the preferred option here.  Specific course offerings online and in-person will be dependent on student enrollment and ability to provide appropriate staffing in each setting for each course.

We will send out bell schedules as the school year draws near. The Link to PP from today - scroll down to the bottom of the page to find PowerPoint regarding Return to School https://go.boarddocs.com/vsba/fairfax/Board.nsf/goto?open&id=BE6FYC414EF0

In this PowerPoint, you will find the following information:

  • Health and Safety
    • Face coverings
    • Cleaning
    • Plexiglass Shield locations
    • Air Quality
    • Confirmed cases and school closings
    • Social Distancing
  • Bell Schedules - A/B Block Scheduling
  • Course Offerings
  • In-Person and On-line Comparison
  • Sports and Activities

I hope this information is helpful as families continue to prepare to return to school in the fall.

Fondly,

Principal Kimberly Greer

Attention Parents/Guardians,

Please be sure to complete the return to school survey to inform school administration if your student(s) will be attending in person or virtual classes during the 2020-21 school year. The deadline for submission is July 15. If no response is provided, students will be assigned to in person instruction.

The FCPS Office of Intervention and Prevention Services will continue to offer mental wellness consultations throughout the summer. If you have concerns about your child’s well-being or if your child would like to speak with a school psychologist or school social worker, please request a consultation.  Our FCPS mental health providers are available to help families get needed support through a 45-minute phone consultation or through secure video conferencing. Appointments are open to all FCPS families. 

Consultations are offered in two ways:

  • Directly to parents of students in any grade level. This consultation provides an opportunity for parents to receive guidance on how to support their child’s social-emotional, behavioral, or academic functioning. Information about community resources will also be made available.
  • Directly to students in middle or high school. This consultation provides support and strategies to students who may be experiencing difficulties with anxiety, mood, behavior, or peer or family interactions; as well as academic challenges such as organization, time-management, or adjusting to a new school.

We encourage parents to take advantage of this service. Click here to request a consultation. You may also leave us a message at 571-423-4276.

High School Continuity of Learning Details

FCPS school buildings will remain closed through the end of July. Therefore, we will continue to provide optional, virtual learning opportunities for students from June 29 to July 31. Students currently in grades 9-11 will have access to a Google Site that provides practice on essential skills to review over the summer. The Google Site(s) will be located on the Free Summer Offerings page and will be live by June 24. The Mathematics site will focus on practice of essential mathematics content. The Language Arts site will provide practice on grammar and mechanics and offer choice reading opportunities. 

To support student learning from June 29 to July 31, teachers will hold one hour per week of “office hours” for Continuity of Learning. Office hours for Mathematics, Language Arts, English Language Development and Special Education will be with one of our own outstanding staff members and are intended to support students with the digital practice resources and the English Language Development Summer Practice Book. Attendance is optional. 

To register for office hours with Langley teachers and receive a secure link, students please complete this form on your FCPS computer. Once registered, you will receive log-in information through your FCPS Google email address (studentID@fcpsschools.net) prior to the first session.

Langley High School Online Math Boot Camp - Summer 2020

Overview:  Boot Camp is designed to prepare students for the math course they will be taking during the 2020-2021 school year.  We offer four different camps, with each offering classes in Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, and Pre-Calculus. Students should sign up for the class that they will be taking during the coming year.  The two-week course is designed to introduce students to their upcoming curriculum and reinforce crucial prerequisite knowledge.  Students will take part in two 45-minute interactive virtual lessons per day. Teachers will also hold daily office hours for students to receive individual help. The program will be taught by experienced Langley High School math teachers who are experts in their subject.  Class sizes are small (around 10 students), so each participant will receive lots of individual attention and continuous feedback.

Dates:

Camps 1 & 2- Algebra 1/Algebra 2 (taught separately): July 6-17.

Camp 3 & 4 – Geometry/PreCalculus (taught separately): July 20-31.
